Hello, from Kristen

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hello to everyone.
My name is Kristen, I have been viewing this site for a while and decided to join. I gained alot of insight from many of the posts.
A little bit about me:
Currently, I am working as a Nanny, and also have my own small business on the side making chocolate and cookies, I sell basically to the offices of my family and friends, and now word is spreading and I am getting a lot of orders from people that have received my goods as presents.

About 5 years ago around Easter time I started making molded Easter candy and sold to my office.
I figured this was a quick way to make extra spending money for an upcoming Cancun vacation.
(After covering all my expenses, I made enough money to pay for the entire trip, plus much more)
I thought this was a good deal, everyone loved what I made and the next holiday I decided to make more chocolates.
Well ever since then I have been making chocolates for every holiday and all occasions (weddings, showers, birthdays…..)
Since I also loved to bake I started selling my traditional “holiday” cookies that I make every year. I make about 15-20 different types of cookies.
Since selling the cookies, that really moved my “small business” in a new direction.
I am currently contemplating opening a small retail store. So much to think about!! So many decision!
I was working for an Insurance company for 10 years and dreaded going to work everyday! The company had a major lay off last year and I was very lucky to be one of the chosen.
My dream would be to have my own business and do what I love everyday.
Talk to you soon,
